Student life

The University can trace its origins back to 1898, when the earliest of its parts were formed as the Bath Academy of Art. The Newton Park campus was first leased by Bath Teacher Training College in 1947 from the Duchy of Cornwall. Bath College of Higher Education was formed in 1975 from the merger of two colleges; Bath College of Education and Newton Park College of Education.

Bath Spa University has several campuses, two of which are exceptionally beautiful and historically significant. They provide a truly inspirational setting in which to study and live, and are well equipped to meet your academic, social and cultural needs.
